House of Illustration is currently showing ‘Picturing Science’, an exhibition demonstrating the process of transformation from early ideas for picture books, research documents and initial sketches to final page spreads and bold book covers.
Designer, educator and ‘transformer’ Marie Neurath was the brains behind dozens of illustrated books for children on scientific topics ranging from nuclear physics to reproduction.
Leading a collaborative team of researchers, artists and writers from the 1940s to the 1970s, she transformed complex science into striking infographics and diagrams to be easily understood by those of all ages.
When: Until 3 Nov 2019, 10:00am – 5:30pm
Where: House of Illustration, 2 Granary Square, King’s Cross, London, N1C 4BH
